PatersonPress is Moving:
North Jersey Media Group (NJMG) has established a content and revenue sharing arrangement with PatersonPress.com. Starting on March 19, NJMG will be publishing PatersonPress.com stories in The Record, Herald News and on northjersey.com. PatersonPress.com will redirect visitors to northjersey.com/paterson.
PatersonPress will remain an independent news organization dedicated to providing in-depth local news about city government, the school district and community events.
PatersonPress.com editor Joe Malinconico said, "“The arrangement with North Jersey will help produce the revenue needed to allow us to continue to provide Patersonians with the award-winning journalism they deserve.’’
Stephen Borg, president of NJMG, said, “This is a win-win-win. PatersonPress now has a source of revenue beyond grants. North Jersey now has access to additional content for the third largest city in the state. Residents of Paterson and beyond now can find more Paterson news in one place.”
Martin Gottlieb, editor of The Record, commented that “this partnership is a great development that will provide Paterson with a rich news report to give residents the information they need.”
PatersonPress.com was launched in fall 2010 by The Citizens Campaign, a Metuchen-based nonprofit, non-partisan organization with the mission to empower citizens to participate in the leadership of their communities. During the past three years, the site has received funding from the Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation, William E. Simon Foundation, and the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation.
